I've heard rumors about all Mach2 kits. Some are noted as 'better' than others....can you let me in on the issues with this kit? It really does not rate real high, so I could forego owning this....

I built it, it was a mess. If you like to have this rare type, take it - but do not expect to get a high quality model with low effort. The parts are not clear to differentiate from the sprue ;), the internals are extreme rough, the wheels are all different, the clear parts are not clear at all, nothing fits...

Thanks...I'm already 'in over my head' with Mach2 kits so I'm dialing back and this will probably drop out of my line-up. I'll keep it on the list, though, just in case something unexpected happens.

Any comments regarding the quality of this kit ?

Tigers! Tigers!
Well as per the norm for the mach kits there are quite a lot of sink marks on the fuselage halves and some on the wings, a nice touch is that the wheel-wells have inner linings with ribs much like the real thing and some detail thats often missing in mach kits

as for the kneeling undercarriage its in the lowered position, so the airframe is resting on the eleven ! pairs of wheels attached to the fuselage, undercarrage is a bit on the poor side. The markings provided are basic but thin and look as if they will work well.
The cockpit cum flight deck, UMMMMmmm its is a compleate fabrication and in the real world completely wrong, so you would need to do some digging and do a scratch build here but its not as hard as it sounds and there is a good book on this aircraft that gives the right info, i will see if i can dig it out, a Shiffer book if i remember, as for the clear parts, well not the clearist parts in the world but should be ok with some future clear over them, however there is a join seam down the center a bit annoying but again fixable , dont forget this is not a mainstream kit so its got no pins to mate the parts together, and needs some works to bring it up to speed but its the only game in town, i dont think its worth its new price tag but if you can get one S/H i say go for it , it will make for something a bit off the norm. BTW when i get a chance to make mine im thinking of makeing a few vacform parts to update it, as far as i know there are no after market parts for it as of yet.........

Many thanks for that! It is a difficult subject indeed, that is why it is so interesting!
